Provenance: From the Illustrated London News; Published 1860. The Illustrated London News was a newspaper founded by Herbert Ingram and Mark Lemon, the Editor of Punch, with the first edition of the Illustrated London News appearing on 14 May 1842. The ILN employed many artists, illustrators and engravers to reproduce images of the news of the day. This was the only way of producing news pictures at this time, and later when photographs became available, even they had to be reproduced using an engraved process. They also employed the services of freelance artists and engravers like Gustave Dore, John Gilbert and many others.
It measures overall 390 x 270 mm (15.5 x 10.5 " ) approximately. There is a little age yellowing - please check the larger picture for condition. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.
Our use of the term "an original print/engraving/illustration" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated. This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including engravings/woodcuts, etchings, lithograph, chromolithographs, photogravures etc. Many prints would have been originally bound in a book or magazines at some time, as was this one.
